Janitor Spends Weekend in Courthouse
Jones was mopping the floor in a meeting room at the Dutchess County Courthouse in Poughkeepsie on Friday night when the door swung shut, locking him in.
To make matters worse, he had left his cell phone in his coat, which was in another room.
Jones banged on the door, but no one heard him until yesterday morning, when a county employee found him in the room.
Even though he was stuck for nearly 60 hours, Jones said he was so upset by his ordeal that he couldn't eat.
Relatives drove around looking for him, but didn't realize he was stuck inside the building.
County officials plan to meet with the janitorial services company Jones works for to find out why no one checked the area where Jones was trapped.
